Viral infection on left eye, treated, still irritation in eye, Dexoren-S, minor spots on retina, Cause?

Hello Doctor I was Viral infection on left eye and cured with the help of a doctor. Unfortunately I am still struggling with irritation in the same eye . I have consulted a doctor from India and he prescribed the medicine DEXOREN-S . He told me that there are few minor spots on retina and may not be completey cured with the medicines. Could you kindly let me know the root cause of this issue and Is there any way this issue can be completely cured ? Appreciate your quick response . Sincerely, Susha Sajesh

dear mam,

There are a few things that i need to know before giving a more precise response

1. what viral infection are you talking about. as u r saying that there is residual irritation, i will assume that its viral conjunctivits. If that is so, then i would strongly advise you to stop dexoren-s. this is a steroid and must be used with extreme caution in case of viral infections.

2. this drug does not have any role to play in retinal pathology. only if u r aphakic (i.e. have been operated for cataract and no IOL has been put in the eye), does the drug reach the retina. so no point in using the same for retinal spots.

kindly do consult your doctor again and get back with the full reports.

hope this helps
